Ale with currants added and aged in oak barrels.

When we made the Toronado’s 20th Anniversary Ale, we had no idea that it would turn out to be one of our favorite barrel aged beers we would ever make. With that said, we have always wanted to make a dark barrel aged beer using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon barrels but, we never were inspired. That is, until we blended five different beers to make the Toronado beer, the tobacco character from the the dark malts blended nicely with the furit character that developed in blending. So, with Concescration we set out to make a barrel beer using all Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. No, we are not saying that this is a replica of the T-rooms anniversary beer, after all, a beer like that can never be duplicated, and, there was no fruit added to that beer as there is with this one. All we are saying is that it gave us great inspiration to brew Consecration.

22 oz bottle...pretty cloudy..chill haze skunky aroma...but that is where bad ends..the flavor is rich and complex...slight barrel oak..not like a buttery chard from knights vallet but good in that respect..very copmlpx and well balanced. not too much on the carbonation but just right to bring esters...extremely floral but from all the above. great beer

Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a sizzling quickly disappearing fizz. Has the aroma of tart berries and grapes. The flaming is a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick straight to your taste buds. Very tart with notes of berry, grape, cab sauv. Very unique which makes it very nice to me.

OMG, beautiful. Sweet cab like aroma, rich luscious color..no I am not rating a wine. But smell goes on for ever. Reissuing Chardonnay characteristics with a Malbec body...again not rating a wine. But this stuff is amazing. Got from a friend in a bomber bottle fir our bachelorette party and it is sliding the party into oblivion. Great fizzy champagne like carbonation...and we only have two bottles. Let the games begin.

En flaska batch 007 (thanks STLWill). Stickande doft av frukt, kola och körsbär. Suuuur! Precis avslutat en cantillon geuze och det är läsk i jämförelse. Tror det är cuve de Tomme jag närmast tänker på eller så är det någon av flarrorna i Lost Abbey-lådan. Brutal citronsyra. 10% alkohol känner jag inte ett spår av. Fantastisk suring man gärna vill uppleva fler gånger. Delar med Egil och Isabel.

Batch 7, bootle conditioned 1 year. (Toronto) Incredibly hard to come by in Canada. Luckily my sister spent part of her honeymoon in SF. Pouring deep red, no head. Spour cherry with hints of currants and wine. I’ve had this on tap at the Russian River brewpub. Honestly, it’s better in the bottle. It needs time to mature (sour up). Found a 001 batch bottle at the Tornado in SD. So sour and delicioso!

On tap at the Brewpub in February 2014. Hazy mahogany with a minimal head. Wow what a beer! Vinous with red berries, oak, vinegar and lemon. Very sour and with no hints of alcohol. I am so glad that I have at least one bottle of this one at home.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear light brown reddish color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is mostly acetic acid with a hint of dark fruits. Flavor is quite tart, but very drinkable. Sour lingers long into the finish. Excellent sour. One of my favs.

Batch 7, bottle pours a clear reddish brown with fast fading head. Aroma is tart fruit and oak. Taste is a big long lasting sour fruit with a sharp finish. Excellent

(Rating 800). Bottle, thanks Josh! Pours a deep reddish brown with thin white head, and champagne-like active carbonation. Nice tart aroma with elements of vanilla, dark fruit, and rich red wine. Wow, really impressive combination of flavors. Very tart, mouth-puckering finish with a warming sensation. Flavors and a sensation of a very complex red wine up front, but then the vanilla and oak come big mid-palate, and tartness kicks in at the finish. Nice complexity with every sip standing on it’s own and revealing new elements.
